which older tools are deprecated with kits?



I'm doing my first funtoo install since all the big changes last summer.  I'm trying to get up to speed chasing down all the right news and forum posts, but I am not clear on which tools that I've always used I should no longer use in favor of ego or epro.  here is what I think I know:


  1. emerge --sync    (use ego sync)
  2. eix-sync                (use ego sync && eix-update)
  3. eselect profile    (use epro)

I'm not sure what to do if I want to use eix or equery.  These are two tools I use alot when analyzing conflicts.  Right now both seem to work, but they throw some warnings that make me think I am not running them right:


(chroot) sysresccd home # equery uses htop

I have recently run ego sync and eix-update in that order.    here is my profile set up

Just ignore the warnings since these tools seem to work otherwise?  That seems not right.

Works, thanks.  

As noted by palica, eix-sync works as well so that's nice.  Is it a bug with epro that put the gentoo tag on the mix-ins?  This is a new install on blank disk from stage 3.  I did some of the mixin and installation stuff a little earlier than usual - normally would have booted into the system before installing x etc.
